La Posada Wedding


Jennifer and James had one of those beautiful Santa Fe weddings where everything seemed to flow effortlessly. It was a perfect Spring day at La Posada as friends and family joined the couple in celebrations–I was glad I was there!

ISPWP Spring 2009 wedding photography contest results

I was very excited to see several of my images place in the top ten of the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers latest competition.
The photographers of the quarter were Bill and Anne Holland of Holland Photo Arts, and I noticed quite a few winners from the Foundation Forum community. Great job everyone!!

Here are my winning pics (2 of them are from an engagement shoot with Wendy and Hunter, whose wedding I will be photographing at the end of the month!)

Walter van Dusen - Congrats..

Yin Yang 3

Dave Cheung
Last month I was one of the students at the amazing Yin Yang 3 photography workshop, led by Dave and Quin Cheung of DQ Studios and Huy Nguyen of F8 Studio, and hosted by Kansas City’s Wirken Studio (thank you Tyler and Becca!). It was an intense and inspiring experience–I can’t wait to try out some of this new stuff this season!

Check out the video (shot with the 5D Mark II, of course!!)

Cabo video on Infocus blog

My favorite part (about 2 minutes into the video) is when San Francisco photographer Ben Chrisman is almost dragged into the pool by the groom. Brett Butterstein also joined us on the shoot in Cabo for Chris and Tamra’s wedding in late 2007. The wedding was covered by WE TV for their Platinum Weddings show. Check out the Infocus blog, or click on the video below!

Canon 5D Mark II and Steadicam Merlin from Vladimir Chaloupka on Vimeo.

christian - i find this really entertaining even though i don’t use any of this gear.

Geoff - Thanks for this. Been looking at this camera for a bit now. There’s always a better toy out there! Can’t keep up.

Geoff - Trying to balance this is a pain. Using the Mark II with a 24-105, f4 lens. Any specs?

Geoff - And what is the model number of that adapter plate?

Thanks :)
